Pick and pack fulfillment services are what most ecommerce organizations use when shipping orders. At ITS Logistics, we have the capability to design the ideal supply chain solution that fits your business needs and exceeds your customers’ expectations. We utilize pick and pack in several of our order fulfillment services, including subscription box fulfillment and direct to customer fulfillment. No matter what you need, we’re here to help.
What is pick and pack fulfillment?
The pick and pack fulfillment process starts when someone clicks “order” on your website or sends you a purchase order. It is the process of accurately picking items from a warehouse, packing them according to a specific standard operating procedure, affixing a shipping label, and shipping the package direct to your customer. A few examples of picking solutions are:
- Zone picking: Order pickers are assigned to a physical location where they pick all the SKUs
- Batch picking: One worker picks a group or batch of orders at the same time
- Cluster picking: Orders are picked into multiple order containers at one time
- Wave picking: One person picks one order or SKU at a time
At ITS, we use standard picking options including cluster cart picking, various batch picking options, and specialized picking scenarios that can be customized to your needs based on service requirements and order profiles and attributes.
Our approach to pick and pack fulfillment
At ITS, we design a creative logistics solution specifically for your business. We know that your customers expect a positive experience—and this can depend heavily on the ability of your fulfillment center to run their picking process accurately and efficiently. Our distribution centers can be designed to fit your business needs to offer your business a cost-efficient operation that meets your customers’ high service expectations. We also have a comprehensive in-house software development team that designs and implements custom software solutions that allow automation of manual processes and increase productivity. One example of this is Flexpick 2.0, which consists of proprietary picking and packing modules developed on an Azure Cloud server. Its capabilities include batch singles, batch multi with put-to-light or put wall, and traditional cluster cart picking. This software allows us to increase our productivity by a substantial margin and streamline client onboarding. It also helps us create the best and most cost effective solutions for your business.
The ITS Logistics difference
We know that not all businesses are the same and not all order fulfillment needs will have the same solution. We have the capability to design processes specific to your business and create real time software solutions to expedite the pick and pack process and increase the accuracy of your inventory management. Simply put, our people have seen everything and helped devise solutions for a myriad of customers in the most demanding industries. Our pick and pack fulfillment services are better than most, because we have full engineering and IT teams in house—working directly on the perfect custom-built solution for you.
Today’s shoppers expect their items to arrive on their doorstep quickly and they want the ability to track their items every step of the way. Shippers, including UncommonGoods, an online and catalog retailer, have to find a cost-effective way to meet those demands and optimize their ecommerce order fulfillment processes.
